Official handover of affordable homes in Keith
Osprey Housing has accepted the keys to the first phase of a £2 million development of affordable homes at Strathisla Park in Keith.
The homes, built in partnership with Huntly-based Deveron Construction, will meet the needs of single people and couples and will provide eight, one-bedroom flats for affordable rent.
Speaking at the handover, Glenn Adcook, CEO of Osprey Housing, said: “We are delighted that the first phase of eight flats at Ripley Place is now complete. These homes, which are already in demand, form part of our ongoing commitment to support the Moray Council and provide much-needed affordable housing, especially in communities like Keith.”
The new properties have been built as lifetime homes and are designed to adapt to the diverse needs of residents as their needs change over time. The homes also feature a host of Ecosmart credentials including solar PV panels which will directly reduce the homes running costs, as well as advanced insulation and A-rated appliances and boilers.
Steve Wells, managing director of Deveron Group, said: “This is our first project with Osprey Housing and it’s great to have completed the first phase. We’re sure the first residents who move-in will be delighted with their energy-efficient and beautifully-finished homes.”
Deveron Group is also working on two other Osprey developments including nine affordable flats in Peterhead to be ready next March and further six, family homes, also in Keith, due to be handed over in May 2018.
